Roofer and Waterproofer Careers

Roofers and waterproofers replace, repair and install the roofs and waterproofing systems of buildings using a variety of materials, including shingles, bitumen and metal.

Roofing and waterproofing work can be physically demanding. It involves heavy lifting, as well as climbing, bending and kneeling, frequently in very hot weather. Overtime may be required to finish a job, especially during busier summer months.

Roofers and waterproofers learn their trade through a registered apprenticeship program that is usually cost free to the student. A high-school diploma or equivalent is required to begin your apprenticeship and career in the trade.



After the apprenticeship and based on certifications, a journeyperson roofer and waterproofer (a qualified and skilled person in a trade), can earn anywhere from $20.00 to $30.00 an hour.
